Glen is fantastic, really pleased with the personalised service, instant results. Their training methods align with our personal philosophy on how you should train and treat your dog. We had major concerns with commercial dog biscuits so it was great that Glen went through diet, we took it on board and feel better with what we are feeding our GSD. The group session in the park was amazing, first visit and Summer didn’t react like she has been when seeing other dogs and even said hello to a few. Fantastic, can’t recommend enough.
We rescued a 7mth old German Shepherd puppy and were having a lot of trouble with her until I contacted Maureen she came and put into place simple dog language instructions for me / humans to follow and let me tell u it’s all worked a treat . I have one beautiful nice natureed calm puppy and thanks to Bark busters will continue with all the training that comes with having a dog and apart now of my family .. Thank you again Maureen for all your help :)
The training has made an incredible change of behaviour for little Ruby. Maureen is a very confident kind and terrific trainer. Poor Ruby did not have a chance to disobey!! Thank you Maureen.
Extremely happy with the result we have achieved thru Barkbusters (Maureen Guelfi) with Orana
WOW. Well worth the investment. I have a 10 year pug and a 2 year old rescue dog that I have only had for two weeks, and was beginning to think that he might not have found his forever home as his behaviour was getting worse by the day, until Maureen transformed them both in one afternoon. Both dogs behaviour has changed, if I hadn't seen it for myself, I would never have believed it was possible. I have a very relaxed happy household and even over christmas, when I got a bit out of routine, Maureen was great at getting us back of track. I would highly recommend bark busters to anyone, as I now have the tools to keep us all as one happy family and one little rescue dog his forever home.
Was very happy with Maureen Guelfi. We had a new dog instantly! Having Maureen from bark busters come to our home and giving us the help we needed for our American staffy is a service I would recommend to anyone having issues with their fur baby.
The techniques make sense and there was a quick noticeable improvement in Roxy’s barking. I had been told by many that with a 5 year old dog it would be too late to train her but she has definitely improved with training and persistence. I now feel confident knowing what to do. My neighbours and friends have been impressed.
Maureen was fantastic with our puppy, she was very knowledgeable and gave us some fantastic advice for a range of issues.
Very knowledgeable and with a great understanding and patience is showing and explaining.
Thanks Maureen for your advice and understanding. Your instructions are easy to follow and have already made such a huge difference with Bentley. My neighbours have all commented on how much he has improved. I’m proud of myself for what I have been able to achieve with him and he’s a happier dog because of it. Couldn’t have done it without your help. Thank you!
Glen is so professional and knowledgeable. Highly recommend him to anyone!
Really good session
We were greatly impressed & appreciative of Glen's experience & competancy when he gave our 8 month old hyperactive Cairn Terrier his first training session. Amazing results were readily achieved, which made owning a young dog so much more enjoyable. We both highly recommend investing in his training methodology - top class!!
What an amazing experience! Maureen Guelfi thoroughly explained and demonstrated the technique to use with my 4 year old dog "Ollie". From the time she arrived at my front door, she immediately had him responding to her. I should have sought her help earlier, had I known what I know now. I cannot believe the positive change this training has made to him and his behavior. He is so manageable and better behaved on his lead, he has responded so well to all the training, particularly his barking. I highly recommend Bark Busters and greatly appreciate Maureen Guelfi's help and guidance.
Glen explained all the processes really well, and the reasons behind them. He changed my dog’s behaviour within a minute.
Glen was in charge of Max the moment he stepped into our house, he stopped him barking as he walked in the door and we've barely heard a yap from him since, it's been awesome. Our dog is 3.5 yrs old and has always barked at every little noise or person/dog that walked past our house and after just 1 session with Glen we have been able to stop Max barking, with very little effort. I can't recommend Glen enough. I wasn't convinced anyone could stop Max barking, but he made it so easy. My only regret is not sorting it years ago.
Maureen was a fantastic trainer. We paid for other trainers that came home and we achieved nothing. Within the first day our baby improved 70%. The difference was remarkable. Highly recommend this method!
Great first session today with Glen. We have made great progress already after one session. Highly recommended!
Coco was barking a lot, jumping on people, growling when he wanted attention, he is quieter now, just a simple BAHh plus training has made a lot of difference!!!
We had Maureen come over today to help with our 3month old puppy. Maureen is wonderful!! ? I felt like myself, husband and pup gained so much knowledge and better understanding from our first training session with Maureen. After Maureen had left we continued with the recommended techniques and I Literally happy danced around the house when Molly was responding. It’s still early days as Molly is only 3 months but I’m already excited to continue our training and see Maureen again. Thank you thank you thank you!!
Maureen was an awesome trainer. She was really helpful and I have seen great change in my both my dogs. Thank you so much for your guidance. My dogs now listen and i can actually open the front door without them trying to run out.
Maureen was so very lovely and she had a wonderful way with Ghost. We are so thankful that she came into our home to help us stop bad puppy habits from becoming big issues further down the track. We can't wait to see the positive results from the Bark Busters program.
Had such a great experience with Glen from Barkbusters helping me with my 7 year old stubborn boy Max. I can see the techniques working immediately and can’t express my gratitude enough that Barkbusters came along after a tough few months trying to get help with Max. Really looking forward to the continuous sessions and hearing more expert advice.
Maureen has changed our dog and our life for the better! Bella no longer barks incessantly making our neighbours happy. We would unequivocally recommend Maureen - she has a terrific sense of humour and gave us practical advice that really works.
Maureen was very informative and helpful. I learnt a lot in my first session with her which put my mind at ease with having a new puppy. Thank you!
Thank you so much Glen. You are simply amazing.
Glen was a good trainer. I learned so much as Ginger is my first dog. Will continue to train and see how it goes. Thank you.
Maureen was fantastic! She explained everything very thoroughly and taught me so many useful technique to help train Chip.
Fantastic 2.5 hours spent with Glen Our Boxer puppy was a totally different dog after the 1st session.
It was great to have Glen come out today and talk us through, and show us though, all of the information we needed to handle our new puppy, it was simple and a relaxed training and worked straight away, thanks Glen
Glen’s a great trainer, amazing understanding of dogs. Great teacher.
Glenn's training techniques were so simple but so effective! I could see an instant change in my dog's behaviour and demeanor. We still have some work to do but I am filled with confidence now that getting our dog's behaviour under control is achievable!!
An excellent professional service, the convince of in home training is a huge added bonus. Our trainers name was Glen and he was fantastic, within half an hour of working with our dog we saw significant improvement with his obedience. Highly recommended!
Bonnie has never been so calm..! The evening and morning after our session, when she would usually be jumping around barking her head off, have been so peaceful and quiet. I am super excited to see how much she improves with more training and am so grateful for Maureen's help!
Had a really eye opening experience with Glen, I can already notice such a difference in my dogs behavior after our first session! Can't wait to keep the training up and have the confidence knowing Rufio is going to be a well trained and obedient dog. Thanks Glen!
What a fantastic 2 hours! Thank you Glen for your help with my beautiful, bossy Rottweiler. You were helpful and supportive and very non-judgemental. Walter was quite different by the time you left. I however still have a lot to learn and practised. So recommend your service.
Glen was really knoweledgable gave us some straightforward techniques to train our dogs. He had them eating out of his hand in a short time and I'm sure we'll achieve the same with practice. They are already calmer and listening more.
Glen was fabulous with lady and I hope we can continue his amazing work
We were very happy with Glen’s approach to Beau’s training. Beau reacted to the training straight away and after the first session we already saw a massive improvement in Beau’s behaviour. We have continued to use the training methods to guide Beau into a good routine and I’m confident that after a few sessions with Bark Busters we’ll have the dog we’ve always wanted!
Maverick has responded extremely well to his first training session. We already have a far better behaved and well mannered puppy and it's amazing to watch. I really appreciate the strategies and resources/equipment offered by Glenn. He was very realistic, and gentle while being straightforward with informing us of the thought process involved with owning a dog. Glenn was very patient with teaching my children as well. It was a holistic approach, both with Maverick and with my family. I cannot recommend Bark Busters enough!
An eye opening experience truly. I didn’t realise the right training would have corrected so many behavioural issues within 20 minutes. As much as I hate to admit it but had I been wiser to have contacted barkbusters sooner I wouldn’t have wasted so much money, time and energy going around in circles training my dog.
Thankyou so much for the informative lesson Glen! You have helped so much and put my mind at ease! We have been having dominance issues with our border collie for about three years now and nothing has helped. Glen was able to tell me why we were having these issues and how to fix them. It’s only been a day but have already noticed a massive improvement. I look forward to the rest of our training :)
I can’t recommend Maureen enough, 6 weeks ago she came to help us with Max a 1yo amstaff. We were having trouble with Max digging, lunging and jumping at doors and pulling on the lead. After 1 visit from Maureen we could see a massive difference in his behaviour, the techniques we learned really do work and now we have a very well mannered dog. Thanks Maureen!
We have a beautiful 8 month old Italian Greyhound who needed some puppy training and behavioural management. In particular, she was jumping a lot for attention and very difficult on the lead. We contacted Bark Busters and Maureen has expertly taught us a few simple tools and skills to address these specific problems. The valuable lesson we have learned is that we are the ‘leaders of the pack’ and Frida must respect that. Consistently using these tools coupled with lots of praise and cuddles is flowing on to her general behaviour. Maureen is very knowledgeable and her teaching is precise and clear. We are definitely on the right track now!
Wow! My husband didn’t expect overnight results but I was very hopeful, and Glen (Bark Busters) has surely delivered. Today rather than contemplating rehoming our pooch (it’s been a challenging year with our first baby and a misbehaving cavoodle); I’m now instead joking about renaming him because Teddy is like a different dog. All of the challenging behaviours that were affecting our relationship are gone. During our 1st session with Glen, we learnt lots and observed the transformation commence immediately. We’re excited to continue with this new training and strategies. Teddy and I are enjoying a nice, relaxing day at home together today. And we haven’t had this level of calm in our home since August 2018!!! Thank you Glen for all of your help! We are so grateful and pleased to see such a change in Ted. He seems happier, more content and relaxed as well. Happy wife, happy life - happy home.
My grown children said this isn’t jack you broke the dog because he was so calm and different to usual and this was later on the day Glen came.
Glen was exceptionally good, taught us the material well, lots of hands on training. We’re already getting so much benefit from the training/intervention. It’s like we have a whole new dog - no barking, jumping, dominating, whining - all resolved!
Very happy. A different dog within hours. So amazing. A week later and we are still going so well.
Our dog Luna is an almost 1 year old staffy/kelpie cross and over 30kg. We had major issues with her barking at EVERYTHING nonstop, we were getting complaints from the neighbours and she was driving us crazy. It was also frustrating to walk her as she would pull so hard on the lead constantly, our children were unable to take her for walks. She was ruling our household and treat based weekly training was getting us nowhere, we were on the brink of having to decide whether we could keep her. After making a desperate call to Bark Busters we were lucky enough to have Maureen come and visit us. Maureen spent the afternoon helping us to understand Luna's behaviour and why she was doing the things she was doing and showed us what to do. It was not easy to change our behaviour but in doing so it changed Luna's behaviour almost immediately. Maureen was extremely patient with us and listened to all of our concerns and addressed each of them in our first visit. We did our homework and continue to do so and are seeing improvements every day. Both of the neighbours that complained have complemented us on how well behaved Luna is now and that they are surprised at the difference in such a short time. Our children who are 14 and 7 are both now able to walk her on their own without her pulling them over. It's also a comfort knowing that Maureen is available at any time should we have questions or concerns.
OMG. What on earth just happened?! We had Maureen in to help us with our pooches on a Saturday morning and by Saturday evening we had 2 completely different dogs. We had a dinner party that night and instead of barking, begging and annoying everyone all night, they were calm and quiet. Angels in fact. Weeks later they are even better. The training helps EVERYTHING. Love Maureen and the Barkbusters system. The support is fantastic. Jimmy and Bel
Looks so easy. Can’t wait to perfect these simple and super effective techniques.
Thankyou so much Glen for helping with my 3 year old kelpie max , I learned so much , can't wait to put into practice
Great lesson. Results were noticeable immediately. Can't wait for next lesson.
Very helpful, there was so much change after the session and will be recommending to others
Maureen was a excellent trainer for our new puppy. She showed us all the techniques to help him along the way. Would recommend Maureen for anybody wanting a trainer with a lot of experience and knowledge.
Maureen was an excellent help for our family with our ridgeback X Rescue dog Leo❤.The response was amazing we saw results in the first session. We are now confident to walk him on a loose lead with out pulling❤. Our experience with Bark Busters was totally worth it, we can't recommend them enough. Thank you Maureen for all your help?
After a successful initial lesson with Maureen, my husband and I have commenced a journey that we are confident will result in a happy and well adjusted dog. Our puppy Ella needs some help in learning what we expect of her. Ella is always confident in the knowledge that we love her and we look forward to learning how to be the best owners we can be. We are confident that Maureen's knowledge and expertise will enable us to achieve our goal. Thank you Maureen, we look forward to a long and successful association with you and Bark Busters.
Maureen was absolutely amazing. Friendly, professional and very understanding. She was knowledgeable and we found it very easy to follow the training. We were so impressed at how fast our little puppy Simba connected with the training. We can't thank Maureen enough and I/we were extremely comfortable and relaxed with her coming into our home. Thank you Bark Busters, the training has helped us enormously. We will definitely recommend you to family and friends.
Fantastic first training session with Glen. Couldn't believe how well our two dogs responded to his methods. Wish we had done this ages ago, so pleased.
Noticed a change in our dog in the first session with Glen. he really helped understand our dog
I was very impressed and it is working
Wow! Such a fabulous lesson for us. It started when I answered the door with Both boys were stunned, learning to walk on the training collar/lead & heeling, using the command then praising them. Took them both for a walk (on their new collar & lead) after Maureen left, only had to use the command once they even sat whilst I spoke to my neighbour, so proud of them both. I cannot praise the excellent training enough. Maureen Guelfi positive words of encouragement & communication was superb & I would highly recommend her to anyone having any issues.
One word - amazing. Maureen was absolutely awesome with a wealth of knowledge and experience however was able to ensure specific training and guidance for our 2 Sharpeis. The entire experience was so well facilitated and we look forward to building a strong training relationship with Maureen. Have to say how awesome it was to see immediate improvement from our first session .
Thanks Maureen for our training session, I can’t believe the changes in one session. Really excited to continue your great work and seeing the changes in my pup.
Maureen was a very passionate trainer. Immediate results and highly recommend her to anyone with dog behavioural issues. Thank you again
The information received was very helpful, Knowing that my two staffy’s are trainable and won’ have many issues. Thank you Glen the information was well received.
Glen is an amazing trainer who listened to every question and concern that we had, and immediately had an answer or way of fixing our problems. He took the time out to get to know our dogs, and within the hour he had them walking nicely on the lead next to us. Glen is very knowledgeable and we wish we had organised this training sooner! I highly recommend Bark Busters and Glen. A great experience for us, and our dogs have greatly benefited from it.
Maureen was very good n I quiet happy as yushi had change from the next day
From the moment Maureen stepped foot into my house she had my dog Leo right under control and by the time Maureen left Leo was so well behaved. The techniques that was shown to me have been of a great help and they are certainly working. With Time, love and patience I know I will have a beautifully well behaved dog. I highly recommend Barkbusters to train your dog it is well worth the money
We are absolutely amazed by the change In jagger after 1 two hour session with Glen. He is now walking perfectly on the lead, waits to exit and enter doors and has stopped jumping up. Everyone at the dog park is stunned with his transformation! Thanks Glen
Now I will start by saying that I was proven wrong. (in a good way) When I was told over the phone that most of Milo's issues would be addressed and resolved within 1 session with Bark Busters (Glen) I kind of wanted to just get the training to see how wrong they were. Well, Glen was simply amazing and did exactly what they said would happen. It was almost as if we had a brand new dog with the same loving nature and playfulness yet a calmer and more aware dog. For those out there that think that training your dog and telling them off is a bad thing (this was me) then we were wrong. It is so good for Milo to have direction and boundaries in his life and he is so much happier. Glen & Bark Busters we would happily recommend you to anyone who is seeking a dog trainer and my wife and I appreciate all the amazing insight you gave us.
We weren't really sure what to expect out of the session as we were trying and failing for a while to get our dogs behaviour under control. However, as soon as Glen came over and had his first interaction with our dogs their demeanour changed for the better. Glen then proceeded to teach us how to properly interact with our dogs and explained the training we should do with them. It has been nearly a week and the dogs are very happy following our lead and stopped quarrelling and instead started playing with each other again. We are very grateful to barkbusters to have our household peace back.
Maureen has been excellent with helping us train our 3 year old dog and teach us training drills that we can use for life. His behaviour within the first month Has been noticeably a lot better. He has been a lot calmer and a lot more obedient towards us. We would recommend bark busters to anyone who may be experiencing issues with their dog.
Amazing Maureen trained our beautiful fur children Pomeranians and two grown human adults. Cannot thank you enough for the knowledge you have given us and cannot recommend you any more than what I certainly will be going forward. Do yourself a favour and book in, it is the best money we have ever spent and with an amazing trainer you won’t regret it. Thank you so much again Maureen for your support and guidance we really do appreciate it and the stress that has been taken away is beyond belief.
Glenn was super clear and effecting at teaching us how to better control Virginia
I have just come back from a walk , hours after my first training session with Glen, and I could just cry! The first time that my arm wasn't pulled out of its socket! There will be lots more hard work , but Heidi and I will get there with Glens expert help! Thank you so much!!
Glen is incredible. How he talks to owners is so easy, has a laugh and speaks to us as adults in a non-condescending manner. He doesn’t come across as being better than us and if we used a practice or act that wasn’t the best option, he gave us valid reasons for what we could use which would be more effective. Our dogs, in 60 minutes of solid training were just exceptional and new dogs. We couldn’t believe it, had to double takes numerous times. We now have new practices that we can use and are looking forward to the next month of work and having really calm dogs. I cannot speak highly enough of the human being that Glen is. We enjoyed his company so much, he’s so knowledgeable and easy to relate to and Glen alone is the reason I would recommend Bark Busters, let alone all the incredible tips he’s taught us, and that’s the trick, teaching humans ? Until next time.
2 year old black lab who recently joined the family. Anxiety issues towards other dogs manifested with aggression
Glen explained and demonstrated some great techniques and simple knowledge to help us combat Hodgey's dog aggression. So far so good, with Hodgey responding very well to training exercises.
I have never seen training work so fast before! Glen explained everything in great detail and when showing the Bark Buster techniques my two German Shorthaired Pointers responded really well. I am looking forward to continuing our training with Glen.
Glen was an excellent educator - he explained the concepts well and was great with our golden retriever Archie. I simply cannot believe how well this method works for Archie - I can’t understand how something so simple can work SO well!! I wish we tried this method a long time ago, we are in awe!
Maureen was amazing. She knew exactly what the issues were with our dog and how to address these. We followed her plan and saw results very quickly. Definitely recommend Maureen and the Bark Busters team.
Very knowledgeable instruction that had an immediate effect on our dog. Thoroughly recommend.
Only one session in and you can see the change in behaviour. Having a large dog with 3 guard breeds in him, my dog was hard to control and unpredictable. Glen was amazing, he explained what was happening and why, and gave me all the tools to have a model citizen. I have no doubt that with a little effort on my part we will get there in no time! Thanks for giving me faith and hope!
I had a great time learning how to train and lead Cosmo. The training was as much for myself as it was for Cosmo :)
Fantastic. Fixed our problems instantly and we now know how to maintain it. Thankyoy
Maureen was absolutely fantastic with our 9 month old border collie. I couldn't believe how quickly Chevy responded to the training and we now have the tools to continue with the training and Chevy is doing really well. I wish we had contacted Bark Busters sooner.
Positive experience. Glen provides background and logic behind training techniques and easy to follow steps for ongoing training.
Maureen has been absolutely excellent to work with! Going into this we thought we were totally alone in all of our problems but Maureen has shown us otherwise. Many people have been through what we're going through and there's always a way to solve it! Thanks Maureen!
Maureen took the time to understand all the behaviours and situations we wanted to address with our dog. She walked through what we needed to do in each situation with simple clear instructions. Maureen also allowed me to practice the one step training under her guidance so that it was clear in my mind what I needed to do. The folder provided good information and her advice around changing my dogs diet has been invaluable. Mocha has been a much calmer well behaved dog after just 10 days of training.
Glen was fantastic with Margo. Within minutes he had her pulling under control. You can see he genuinely loves dogs and I felt immediately comfortable with him as a trainer. Couldn't recommend highly enough.
We were extremely impressed. It was like Moose was a complete different dog. I wish I contacted Bark Busters sooner. Very simple and easy to learn. The training is something we can do every day with ease. Glen was amazing. I highly recommend him. Moose responded so easily and we look forward to continuing his training. The cost is well worth it. It's lifetime.
Glen came out to meet our dogs and was great. Made sure that I understood everything he was doing and why he was doing it. Had my dog Scout responding so quickly. Can't wait to get training!
Glen,s knowledge and hands on approach complimented and enhanced what I was already doing with faster results. I feel that all of the training tips offered will be easily applied in Glens absence for a better than he already is dog and am glad that we decided to work on these things now rather than later. I love the training tools that come with the sessions.
Most amazing thing I have ever witnessed. Glen was born to do this kind of work. I never in my life would have guessed how quickly he could relate to my Zeus and how well he could tap into his psyche. I had no idea what to expect but honestly could not have been more impressed, valued and happy with Bark Busters service. Glen is a genius when it comes to dogs and I really thought Zeus would give him a run for his money but not even close. Glen is compassionate and gentle but simultaneously firm and it gets results. I am one to baby my dog and he taught me how to really help my dog and make him happy. So thankful!
Before training Mila with Bark Busters she was slightly aggressive towards people and dogs, pulled on the lead and needed some general training. I was always anxious to take her out for a walk, to the park, not knowing how she was going to react towards people and other dogs. But with only 2 sessions with Bark Busters I am so amazed with Mila's progress. I can take her for a walk and be on the same side of the footpath with a dog and a person now, where before I wouldn't be able to be on the other side of the road without getting a reaction. I now can take Mila for a walk without having to worry about anyone else being around. I can take her to the park and Mila will come back when called and walk by my side even if she is off the leash. I can not wait to see what else Mila can do and more of her progress. I am so thankful for Maureen, helping me out so much, answering any question I had and being a phone call away if needed.
I couldn't believe within the first 5 seconds of meeting Maureen my dog was already listening to her and not taking his eyes off of her just waiting to see what to do next!!!! I can't wait for a revisit to see how we are going!!!
